Recent & Pending Individual Landmark Designation Requests

Cases Under Review by the Historic Landmarks and Preservation Districts Commission

Case #21-LANDMARK-0002 – Cornelia Bush Gordon House, 308 Kenwood Hill Rd

This designation request was initiated by the current property owner. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It is significant for its physical evolution from summer cottage to year-round residence. Kenwood Hill was a summer retreat in the late 19th century and it was comprised of many small cottages. The Cornelia Bush Gordon House is one of two remaining cottages left on Kenwood Hill, the other being the Little Loomhouse, which is locally designated as an Individual Landmark. There are no other such cottages in Louisville Metro.
